A bstractWe compute the conformal blocks associated with scalar-scalar-fermion-fermion 4-point functions in 3D CFTs. Together with the known scalar conformal blocks, our result completes the task of determining the so-called ‘seed blocks’ in three dimensions. Conformal blocks associated with 4-point functions of operators with arbitrary spins can now be determined from these seed blocks by using known differential operators. 

Multipoint conformal blocks in the comb channel

A bstractConformal blocks are the building blocks for correlation functions in conformal field theories. The four-point function is the most well-studied case. We consider conformal blocks for

Conformal correlators and blocks with spinors in general dimensions

We compute conformal correlation functions with spinor, tensor, and spinor-tensor primary fields in general dimensions with Euclidean and Lorentzian metrics. The spinors are taken to be Dirac

Dimensional reduction for conformal blocks

A bstractWe consider the dimensional reduction of a CFT, breaking multiplets of the d-dimensional conformal group SO(d + 1, 1) up into multiplets of SO(d, 1). This leads to an expansion of
